DcSoundOp Asks: Should You Solder speakON Connectors? (Video)

Best practices in assembly, when and why they should be soldered, and how to avoid making a mess of them when you do.

By Steve Milner October 16, 2017

In this video, long-time freelance audio engineer DCSoundOp focuses on best practices in assembling standard Neutrik speakON connectors — when and why they should be soldered as well as how to avoid making a mess of them when the soldering route is taken.

There’s more to the equation than just connection quality. The effects of heat on both plugs and cables, acceptable wire gauges, long-term durability and more must be considered.

DCSoundOp considers various approaches and demonstrates techniques in comparison to determine if there really is a “right way” to go about it.
